Waiting for the Light

February 17, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I had the opportunity to recently photograph the iconic Angel of Independence monument in Mexico City, but to do it over a span of time.

The difference in the light is pretty impressive - and all in the span of about an hour! Moral of the story - wait for the light!

First shot, at about 5:45pm:
